Since the company’s inception in 1886, innovation has been a cornerstone of Westinghouse Electric Company. It’s no surprise, then, that Westinghouse was the first vendor to bring revolutionary steam generator technologies, such as suitcase eddy current, alternate repair criteria, sleeving, auto analysis and soft chemical cleaning, to market. For more than 40 years, Westinghouse has served the industry with a complete range of solutions for steam generator inspection, service and maintenance.

But having technology is not enough. Technology is only valuable if it can be applied to help you enhance safety, improve performance and lower cost. With Westinghouse, you get it all.

In the past year alone, Westinghouse has delivered new steam generator technologies in the market that:

  • Reduce eddy current inspection schedule up to 35% using Westinghouse’s Zephyr® Advanced Acquisition System, which incorporates intelligent planning and cycle time optimization
  • Extend probe life by 100% with Zephyr®, our revolutionary probe delivery method
  • Decrease data analyst demand by 75% with Westinghouse’s custom-designed TITAN™ Single Pass Auto Analysis program, utilizing two independent eddy current analysis methods to:
    • Decrease the potential for human error
